This new hotel is attractive with contemporary decor and is very clean. Best of all, the wonderful mattress on the bed gave a very good night's sleep. The king room was spacious and comfortable. The linens are fresh, spotless, and soft.
The location of the hotel is a big plus. It is close to I-81 without being too close. It is far enough from the interstate and road noise. It is located on a highway, so we asked for a quiet room.
The only negative of our stay was the fact that we were given a room with a door to the next room, and in spite of the fact that the hotel was far from full, other guests were booked into the adjoining room. The guests next door chose to play their TV loudly until 11:30. We might have heard some noise through the walls anyway, but adjoining doors are always opportunity for sound to travel between rooms. The next time guests request a quite room, I suggest putting them in a room with no extra doors.
The complimenary breakfast provided a good variety of both hot and cold items -- eggs, gravy, biscuits, make your own waffles, yogert, bagels, cereal, coffee, and juice. My only complaint would be that the waffle batter was too thin resulting in overflow and difficulty lifting out the cooked waffle.
Considering that the hotel is new, clean, comfortable and that a free breakfast is included with the price of the room, this hotel is a very good value for the price, especially if you have a discount program.
On the way to the shopping mall, we stumbled upon a nice, moderately priced steakhouse called the Great 611. The food was good, and the service was great.
